A grand adventure

is about to begin.

~A.A. Milne


It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I welcome you to the Early Childhood Center at Number 4 School, the first stop in your education through Lawrence Public Schools.  This is the same place where, many years ago, I began my education.   My experiences with the Lawrence School District have allowed me to find happiness throughout my life, and as the educational adventure starts for our young learners, I hope to provide them with the same positivity I received throughout my time as a Lawrencian.


The Early Childhood Center at Number 4 School welcomes all district resident pre-kindergarten and kindergarten children to begin their learning in a developmentally appropriate setting that prepares them for the years ahead. Our full day programs support the academic and social growth of the district's youngest learners.  Please use this website to learn as much as you can about our school and the programs that we utilize to strengthen the educational experience of our students.


The Number 4 School offers a unique learning environment inside a beautiful, well maintained building. Aside from our three outdoor gross motor play areas, we have an indoor playground for when the weather is bad! Learning takes place through experience, especially in the early childhood years.  Therefore, at Number 4 School, children will explore and expand their world under the guidance and support of a highly qualified staff of early childhood experts.  Our staff is dedicated and committed to give each and every child the best learning experience possible.

At Number 4 School we are a "Family of Learners."  We offer community families many ways to join with us in a partnership that is vital to the success of our children.  Check the website throughout the year for our monthly calendar of events and principal's letter. The staff here at Number 4 School and throughout the Lawrence School District welcomes you to our learning community.  Let us enjoy the journey together!
